Skiing

With the economy such as it is, it’s no wonder resort areas are not only offering fantastic deals to attract travelers, but also making major improvements to their facilities and surrounding areas in an effort to increase revenue. New hotels, restaurants, and pubs are springing up, as well as more gondolas and shuttle transportation. Trail enhancements and faster and more efficient snow making systems are also on the agenda for many resort areas as well as better lighting for night skiing. Also, look for upgraded rental shops with some great deals on equipment, more festivals and celebratory events throughout the season.
